Let me get this straight. Canada is flying bombing missions targeting ISIS positions in Syria in conjunction with a U.S.-led coalition that also includes Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar -- all three of whom have financed various extremist and jihadist Sunni groups.

Perhaps, the most well-endowed supporter, Saudi Arabia, has at one point or another bankrolled fighters aligned with both ISIS and Al Qaeda in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon as part of an anti-Shia alliance in the region to counter Iran.

Syria is the 14th country in the Islamic world that U.S. forces and their allies have invaded, occupied or bombed in the past 35 years. It hasn't worked.
